Odisha is known to have the largest number of tribes among all states in India. There are more than 60 tribal communities in Orissa, most of whom have their own living styles and speaking languages and are also isolated from society as well. Visiting the tribes can be a fascinating experience, but there are only limited tribes who are a bit open and like to get visitors to know about their traditions and sell local products as well.
